I'm a bit naive when it comes to long range rifles, so I decided to do a bit of research before making a purchase.
I've heard alot of negative about the Remington 7400 autoloader and its tendency to jam with small amounts of grime and certain ammo. Therefore, I turned my attention to the classic 700 line. It seems like you can't go wrong with any of those (unless it's a pre-1982 model). But, upon further reading, I see them say (on Remington's website) that the 7600 is comparable in accuracy to the best bolt guns because of its free-floated barrel. How true is that?
Because of the pump action on the 7600, I figure it should avoid the jamming problems of the 7400. Is THAT true?
Also, I'm sure the 7600 doesn't have quite the accuracy of the 700, but if it really is comparable, that may be a sacrifice that I'm willing to make because of the higher # of cartridges that the 7600 can hold (especially w/ Millet 10rd extended mags). Is there a company that makes extended magazines for the 700 models that use detachable mags?
Your knowledge is greatly appreciated...
